Tyra Mail! It says, "Tchiqui Tchiqui Toom, Tchiqui Tchiqui Toom, Tchiqui Tchiqui Toom, Tchiqui Tchiqui Toom. Love, Tyra." This actually makes far more sense than anything Tyra has sent via mail thus far. The girls are confuzzled. The next day, they take their bus to the G.R.C.S.E.S. Aguia de Ouro. Inside, they see couples dancing! And not only dancing, but samba dancing! Allison is instantly struck with crippling fear, and tells us that she is not a great dancer because she has no rhythm. I know you're shocked about this one. Paulina greets the girls and says, "You didn't think you were going to come all the way to Brazil and not learn a samba, did you?" A good samba dancer, she tells the girls, needs poise and coordination. And, you know, I would buy that Paulina is a woman of many talents. But wasn't she eliminated first on her season of Dancing With the Stars? I'm just saying. Well, at least she's leaving the instruction to the professionals, and she introduces the girls to their dance instructor, Juliana Leite.
In both samba and modeling you have to move your body and make it look easy. Juliana knows how to make it look easy. Teyona says that the first two steps were really easy and she caught on just fine. However, once the turns started, Teyona realized that dancing can make you dizzy. Maybe that explains Paula Abdul. That and the morphine pump. With their mini-lesson done, Paulina tells the girls that she wants them to infuse their dance with an awareness of what their face looks like while doing it. She says to fake it with confidence, which is actually some of the best advice you can get in life. The girls are to look at Paulina as if she were the camera, or as if she were Nigel with one-third the smarminess.
Celia is up first to dance. She interviews that samba is something that she's never done before, but she's ready to fake it. I have to say, Celia doesn't look half bad. Paulina tells us that Celia moves like royalty. This could be construed as a good thing, but in fact Celia is stiff and thus stripped the passion from the samba. Paulina doesn't think that it's her forte. And then, Paulina lets Celia have it. She begins by saying that there are so many things about Celia that are stunning and alluring. But, Paulina continues, Celia wants it too much. She says, and I quote, "You are at an age that is, like, way old for modeling. And desperation is not sexy." Celia looks like she's fallen and she can't get up. And seriously, Paulina, give the woman some credit. It's hard to dance with a walker! Paulina tells Celia to let go and have fun. Aminat agrees that Celia needs to chill and just enjoy the beautiful situation that they're in.
